War Photographer Ends Up Being Total Fraud Who Deceived The World With Photoshop
Glad the low-life was finally outed...
A good definition of a pathetic human being. Wikipedia should have a listing and showcase him as an example.
Why put in the work and effort if you can lie and steal? (I'll spare the forum my political rant!)
The problem is with a good software program and some practice, digital manipulation is becoming easier and easier to do and harder and harder to detect.
These days, posting an image online is akin to putting a framed photo out on the curb with a FREE sign on it. Even those ghastly watermarks won't really disuade anyone from taking it.
Agreed. The whole deceived the world with Photoshop headline is basically click bait. It implies some sophistication when all that is required here is shamelessness. Photoshop has nothing to do with it. He copied the image from a website and did a horizontal flip, crop, and re-post. Millions of people do it everyday on social media and they don't make the news. I found a few of my images online. The only thing different is that well established news organizations did not do their required due diligence and made him legit for awhile.
And embedding something in EXIF data is also meaningless.
All anyone has to do is take a "screenshot" of a photo, and they have it with zero EXIF or digital data from its past.
True. The person involved in this did not even have to do much.
You can also wipe clean all the EXIF data of a jpeg as well.
